Hindustan Unilever Limited has decided to withdraw ‘Knorr’ Chinese instant noodles as the product was not approved by FSSAI.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) handed over to food safety commissioners attending the authority’s central scientific advisory committee meeting in New Delhi last Thursday a blacklist of food products and brands, including Starbucks and Kellogg’s.
